In this drawing class, artists will discover, or perhaps rediscover, the fundamental concepts all art is based on. We will cover the most essential subjects such as observation, accuracy in drawing, proper value structures, and basics of flow and composition. The goal of this class is to give students the mental tools and techniques they need to achieve the artistic and creative goals that they wish to.  We will discuss the anatomy of the head and face, as well as overall basic skeletal and muscular anatomy in ways that are easy to apply to any person. This will enable students to better draw the people they see, as well as to understand the structure and proportions of human beings as to be able to better draw them from imagination.  Students will work in pencil and charcoal in class while learning concepts and portraiture techniques that are applicable in all other medium.

Illustration: Storytelling through Art

Ages 12-18 • Thursdays, Mar 15- May 10 • 10:30-12:00

In this drawing class, artists will explore the art of illustrating in many forms. We will discuss concepts such as character design, composition, color theory, and storytelling with images. The goal of this class is to enable students to use ideas and stories to craft visually compelling and beautiful illustrations and scenes. Class projects will include drawing for classic stories such as Aesop’s Fables and Grimm’s Fairy Tales, as well as creating comic pages and sequential art. Students will draw in pencil in addition to exploring the use of ink and watercolor to explore new options while learning the concepts demonstrated in the class. In the end, they will have provided illustrations for the Original Story written by the Creative Writing Class.
